Default Sunrise @ 5 o'clock in the morning - Too much of "nothing" around?

I got up very early (04:00) that morning, a few days ago, to get som long-planned shots of a scenery I have only visited during day-time so far. Was lucky weatherwise as it was a clear (but nosedripping cold!) night.

By the way, it's a lighthouse-configuration, thats why I didn't want to 'remove' the tower with the blinking red light on. Should I have?

To one of the shots I tried to apply this effect I'v seen from others (don't know what it's called...) as to make it look like a miniature(mock?)-scenery.

The question is: Is ther too much of "nothing" around - should I crop? Personally I like the great wide opennes in the original, sharp throug-out photo ( which gives the white house some feel of solitude), but I am unsure about this one her.

Any comments / suggestions?

Is this "minimalist photography? Somewhere in your post is an image; our job is to locate and critique it?

Truly sorry. Just couldn't resist. You are herebye given permission to do the same to me, when (without a doubt) I make a similar error.

Ahh, yes.

This is an odd picture to critique. Once again it looks like you've created a "diorama," but I find the out of focus tree's(?) interfere with the image. At the same time, I like the rocks on the right forground.

In my opinion, in the odd manner, you're killing this very interesting shot.

Dave has put it well. You killed an otherwise interesting shot with that arbitrary blurring of the image.

+1. No need of a first blurred plane here. Just the mystery of the house in the crepuscular light could have done it (gosh, I'm speaking like bahadir!).
